The medieval Galata Tower adds a fairytale element to the hilly Beyoğlu district, on the north side of the Golden Horn.

Capped with a conical tiled steeple and gold finial, the 67 meter (220 foot) stone tower was built by the Genoese in 1348.

Visit the outdoor observation area at the top for a stunning panorama across to Sultanahmet, have dinner or a snack at the tower-top restaurant, or watch a Turkish belly-dancing show at the nightclub.

Practical Info

The Galata Tower is in Beyoğlu; elevators take you from ground level to the top floors.

To get here, cross the Golden Horn via the Galata Bridge and make your way up the hill. It’s a short walk from the Tunel metro.
